Walmart’s humorous ads featuring a trash-talking gamer duo are in a new TV spot for Activision’s Modern Warfare 2. The retailer had previously aired the pair pitching EA’s Madden football titles.
The premise for the new ads is the same, with the two seemingly well adjusted men reverting to childish tactics when it comes to online gaming. The original ads had a little subtlety despite their ridiculous premise, one of grown men lying badly to mislead each other about whether they ve been practicing their online Madden skills. The spin for Modern Warfare goes for more over-the-top dialogue and a slapstick punchline.
